Diesel was ready for a freedom road trip, but needed some help! Approximately three years old, this Pit Bull arrived as a stray at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on March 11th. Diesel had what appeared to be a bite wound on his right front leg. While it wasn’t a serious injury, Diesel needed vet care, which the shelter doesn’t provide. Even more, he needed a rescue so that he could get out of the shelter alive.
On March 14th, as an incentive for a rescue to take Diesel, RADAR provided an offer to assist with his vetting. Last Paw Rescue in Wisconsin stepped forward to take Diesel! The luck of the Irish was with him when he safely left the shelter on St. Patrick’s Day! He went directly to get his initial vetting done and treatment for his leg wound. Unfortunately, Diesel tested heartworm positive. He received his heartworm treatment on May 1st.
We were told this about Diesel from his foster mom: “He is doing great. Diesel is by far one of the sweetest boys I have ever had in my home! He is so gentle with absolutely everybody: dogs, children and adults. He is a big goofball! His leg has healed up very nicely. He has a big scar, but he isn’t limping on it anymore, and the wound is no longer open.” Click here to view more photos of Diesel.
RADAR paid $250 towards Diesel’s initial vetting ($150) and heartworm treatment ($100).
